New felt - the update!

This actually didn't take that long to do, it's just taken me a while to photograph it - hey ho.

Working in all one colour and only in blanked stitch, you can soon crack out the patches.

I think each little patch took about 20 mins 20x9 = 180 mins/ 3 hours - is that all?? and then the other bits took a bit longer of course, but not an age.

I then carefully machined them flatly together on a piece of fabric hanging around needing a a new mission in life.
And then played around with feather stitch and different colours for each side of the squares.

Now, my only problem is what to do with it? mmmmm, it makes sense to keep it as a sample to carry about, but is really calling out to be finished into 'something', but what?
bag - funny size and would get spoilt
cushion cover - too bulky
just a flat thing to put on the wall - could be!


  1. I think it would look amazing as a cushion!

  2. I absolutely love this piece. I am just starting to get into felt work, so I am eager to see your beautiful work. I have made the snowflake like paper designs at the bottom of that post. I did it with my students when I was teaching. They just loved it and so did I.

    You are very, very talented and an inspiration.

  3. Oooooo I like this.
    Lovely stuff :-)

  4. thanks ladies, great that people are looking at my work, I sometimes wonder! I shall now have a cuppa and look at your lovely blogs. xxx
